Bowie’s boy wins in­die Brit award

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - News -

When we first heard that Dun­can Jones was set to di­rect a film called Moon, it seemed likely that Dun­can would have trou­ble es­cap­ing dad David Bowie’s shadow. Such fears were fi­nally laid to rest last week, when his fine film won best pic­ture at the Bri­tish In­de­pen­dent Film Awards. An­drea Arnold picked up best di­rec­tor for the sear­ing Fish Tank, while Let the Right One In tri­umphed as best for­eign-lan­guage pic­ture.

Other win­ners in the im­pres­sively well-judged event in­cluded Tom Hardy as best ac­tor for Bron­son and Carey Mul­li­gan as best ac­tress for An Ed­u­ca­tion. One re­port dragged out the old “pointer to the Os­cars” baloney, but if any of those win­ners other than Mul­li­gan even re­ceives a nom­i­na­tion we’ll eat our hat.
